Book description
There are four major dilemmas at work in the rapid decline of the United States' healthcare system: the disappearing primary care sector, healthcare insurance reform, the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on the practice of medicine, and reform of malpractice litigation. In The Rise and Fall of the American Medical Empire, Dr. Robert A. Linden provides a comprehensive, straightforward explanation of these four dilemmas, from the perspective of a primary care physician who has spent 30 years working directly with patients and seeing first-hand how changes in the system have impacted patients and physicians. Dr. Linden sorts out the fragments of information that most readers get through the media and fills in the blanks to provide a full, clear picture of what's wrong with the U.S. healthcare system, an impartial review of proposed solutions, and a look at what several other countries have done to reform their healthcare systems. Unlike the many academic authors of previous books that have covered the problems only in part and skewed information toward their own agendas, this book will help you understand the problems we face and form your own assessments of what should be done to restore the American healthcare system.
